Guaranteeing your first Soul Skill is vitally important to the file. It's what allows you to run out Ryu first even though he's by far your best card, because you will always have enough SP for units to follow after him. It allows you the ability to play a return on turn 4 without absolutely killing your ability to play a level 3 to fight with Ryu, and due to the way the open works, the opponent might still be waiting on their first soul, making them at least 4SP behind. In a rush file like Mage Soldiers it is crucial to win the early turns, and Jewel lets you win the early turns basically every time with no real effort.
